Contributors needed

We believe that attempts to address sexual violence in any community should be guided by core principles of respectful and meaningful collaboration.

We are very conscious that our core editors are all white Australian GPs, and that our perspectives could potentially dominate the conversation. This is why we are asking for researchers from all areas of the globe and from different disciplines to talk about their own communities, to balance our perspectives and provide as representative a book as possible.

In the interest of generating a diverse and balanced platform for these perspectives, we welcome contact from researchers who we do not already have within our network. However, this project is being published as a book, and as such we have a limited amount of chapters available. We are currently in our final stage of recruitment, and are seeking contributors for the following chapters:

What if my chapter isn’t on your list?

Although we have necessary restrictions on the content included in the book itself, this project is part of a broader international dialogue, and we want to continue its momentum. We are currently in the process of extending this project in the form of an observatory, to ensure that publication of the book does not close the door on other stories being told, and heard.

Therefore, if you are a researcher or an expert in a subject that is not provided for within our chapter briefs, please reach out to us, as we intend to use this site to continue to update research relating to this project even after publication of the book itself.
